Enjoy a fantastic stay in one of the best spots in Barcelona, right by the beach and the city center. A really nice room in a designers apartment and the best tips to help you move around like a local!

• Parquet wooden floors and aluminum windows, recently repainted and redecorated (along with the rest of the apartment).
• Tons of daylight from a huge double window that opens to your own little balcony.

THE APARTMENT
A stunning apartment with lift, rebuilt a couple of years ago and just recently redecorated in a modern, relaxing style. The nature is very present as there are many plants all over the place that would make you feel like in an indoors garden. Lovely parquet wooden floors and very bright spaces as all the rooms (excepting for the bathroom) are exterior. Living-room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the trees, modern kitchen with ceramic hob, microwave, washing machine, bath with shower and great water pressure.. , Wi-fi internet, security front door.

LOCATION / THE NEIGHBORHOOD
La Barceloneta, the charming quartier by the sea and just next door to both the beach (literally a 5' walk) and the city center. This area which just a few decades ago was home to fishermen and sailors and nowadays puts together that old school genuine vibe along with a modern touch on a fantastic blend. Here you will be perfectly located for exploring Barcelona's classic old neighborhoods and landmarks: The beaches and harbour, El Born, La Rivera, the Gothic quartier, Las Ramblas, Plaza Cataluña, the great park of La Ciutadella.. Or a 5 minute walk will take you to many options of public transportation, in case you feel like getting to all the other marvels that this beautiful city has to offer.
My building is located in a beautiful and very central street just next door to the Barceloneta fresh market with its stalls overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and Spanish and Catalan specialties, and also a large supermarket with a wide selection of products at a very convenient price.
Just stone's throw from the apartment you can find the famous Baluard Bakery (one of the best in town) that sells delicious freshly made baguettes and artisan breads as well as a small selection of pastries and also any number of great shops, bars and restaurants from inexpensive to pricey. Basically, and excellent place to be, with easy access to all the entertainment but where you can also relax and enjoy a good sleep cause our street stays nicely quiet during the night.

PRICE/ CONDITIONS & OTHER INFO
Please check the calendar for pricing and availability, or even better, contact me directly to confirm the details.
I'm happy to let the room to adult and nice people, preferably light or non-smokers, tidy and respectful who can be confortable with cats (i've got 2 very friendly ones : )
Btw please note that the common areas are to be shared with me (female photographer, on my early 30's) and occasionally with the guest(s) who might be staying at the other room that i am offering at my apartment.
Just one thing.. PLEASE: NO loud or untidy people, party animals or individuals who cant respect the house rules. Sorry but it just wouldn't work.if this sounds good and you want to stay over just drop me a line letting me know about you and also the dates you would like to reserve the room and i will promptly get back to you.

Cheers from Barcelona!····················································································································EN ESPAÑOL ☺

  • Es war ein tolles Wochenende in Barcelona! Die Wohnung von Susana liegt fantastisch nah zum Strand und super zentral zur Altstadt von Barcelona. Der Strand, viele schöne Restaurants und Bars sind zu Fuß erreichbar.
    Die Wohnung und das Zimmer sind gemütlich und absolut sauber.
    Susana war eine tolle Gastgeberin, die uns jederzeit mit Tipps für Barcelona ausgeholfen hat. Wir werden sicher wiederkommen und auf jeden Fall wieder bei Susana wohnen.

  • Susana is the kind of host you hope for... her house was beautiful and clean, perfectly located, and she welcomed me into her home with loads of great information, warmth, and comfort. She goes out of her way to make your experience in Barcelona as good as possible, and she herself is a joy to be around. Thanks!

    The room was super clean whit a comfortable bed and bedding.
    Susana speak perfectly English and is super sweet, and is really helpful if you have any question.
    I can totally recommend this place if you are one or two and want to have a nice stay in wonderful Barcelona ❤️

  • I had a wonderful time staying at Susana's cozy flat in Barceloneta! She and I hit if off immediately, and I felt as welcome as a new roommate, rather than a transient guest! Not only was she a gracious hostess, but she opened her cabinets, refrigerator, and twice offered me a plate of the delicious food she had just cooked. I loved the bright spacious room and will definitely keep in touch as a new friend and also rebook for my next trip!

  • We have had a great time in this apartment. It was close to the beach and not far from Columbus Monument and the begin of La Ramblas. The host Susana was nice and very helpful. Thank you Susana for your great hospitality! The neighbourhood is lively and you get a gist of ordinary people's live. We may come back again! If you come to Geneva, please let us know.

  • Susana's place is perfectly situated in La Barceloneta, and it was really nice there in the winter time. She's a super friendly host, and speaks perfect English. The place is rather small, but Susana is a pro and knows her way around other people. Mutual respect works well, and you can be as free as a bird in this place.

  • The appartment is well situated very close to beach and a good point from which to explore Barcelona. However, the house block and house itself is one that makes no architect proud and has a bit of "ghetto" feel to it. The appartment looks significantly larger in the pictures than in reality. Especially that applies to bathroom, so when one sits on a toilet pot, one can stare at the oposing wall 1 inch away. Shower was dirty with hair and some other black stuff that only microbiologists can truly admire.

    The appartment has 4 rooms - one for common use, one for host, two for rent. Host's rooms is 1m away from the rented rooms so the private room does not seem very private at all.

    All in all, this appartment is not a hotel alternative, but a hostel alternative and better suited for (website hidden) than renting especially at EUR 100 per night.

    Response from Susana:

    This review is simply inaccurate, so just to clarify a few points: 1/ La Barceloneta is a painteresque, laid back, work-class neighborhood by the beach, not a posh area at the financial district (fortunately i must say), but calling it a 'ghetto' is not just far from reality but also plain wrong, that to say the least. 2/ During your stay in my place the second room that i let wasnt occupied. As soon as i spent most of the time either working outside or chilling in my room you pretty much had the whole apartment for yourselves. I dont know exactly what you mean with 'lack of privacy' but taking on account that you rented a room in a shared apartment i cant possible think of a more ideal scenario than the one that you were provided with. 3/ I am extremely concerned about the house cleaning, so it is mentioned at the house Rules&Manual and the guests are expected to respect it. Not just the bathroom but the entire house is pristine clean so Re to the 'shower dirty with hair etc' part, please ask your partner about it, not me. I in fact collected her left overs a couple of times. 4/ I very much tried to be helpful, friendly and accommodating with you and the impression that i get is that you couldn't care less about my efforts. This is not meant to be hotel, Airbnb offers the chance to experience cities from a local, homey environment and the very positive reviews that i received along the way makes me believe that i know a bit about this concern. With all due respect but you don't seem to be the kind of guest that would suit into a shared place, specially if the apartment is not located in the poshest part of town. I am sorry that you didn't have the time of your life here but if you were expecting to have noone around and live in a fancy skyrocket hotel style in the financial district then you should have invested a few minutes reading the detailed info provided in my ad and save us both a very disappointing experience.

About
Hi there, my name is Susana and i'm a photographer, i am originally from the Basque country but pretty much based in Barcelona for the last 10 years or so.. during this time i've also travelled and on&off lived in a bunch of other places (UK, US, Sweden, Russia…) sometimes for pleasure, sometimes for work. Music and design in all its forms are some of the corner stones of my life and most of my work is somehow related to them. I'm quite into movies, and actually.. anything creative. I dig my cats (Olive and Supernena) and i'm sure that you'd love them too cause they're by far the coolest ladies in town! what else.. i love riding my folding bike (some people say that 'folding bikes' are no real bikes but thats just because they're jealous ; ) and.. i really like to make my house a cozy and beautiful place to be in so.. i hope that if you stay over you will get to like it as much as i do! Cheers from Barcelona!
